Cheap Eats




Finding the best spots for meals on the cheap is often just a matter of going to the closest college town, and Durham, home of the University of New Hampshire, is a great place to start. While the town has its share of pizza parlors, coffee shops and burger joints, there’s now a lively place dedicated to another classic casual chow-down food — the chicken wing. Wings Your Way is off the beaten path near the town’s main drag and has everything needed for a wing fest — cheerful counter service, a good beer selection and plenty of sauce choices that go beyond the norm. nBeyond the traditional buffalo version in mild, regular and “way hot,” wings can be ordered bone-in or not and tossed with a choice of ten different sauces. I found that even the “regular” is lip-tingling hot, and for variety there’s a robust Cajun sauce, tangy chili lime, mellow sweet and sour, teriyaki and even an exotic Thai peanut sauce, one of my favorites. Order quantities by names with a hint of tongue in cheek — The Anna Nicole (pre-TrimSpa) is 50 pieces at just $24.99, in glaring contrast to the Mary-Kate with a light five pieces for $4.25. Share a smorgasbord of wings with a variety of sauces along with fries or onion rings, and sip a brew while watching the game on a 62” screen TV. There are salads, wraps and quesadillas as well, but with one of their special video nights with the “Three Stooges” or karaoke it’s still best to dip and savor some of these spicy wings. Just keep plenty of napkins on hand. nWings Your Way, 13 Jenkins Ct., Durham. (603) 868-2425 www.wingsyourway.com
